You may be confusing download and upload bandwidth limits. Just because your connection download bandwidth max increases, your upload may not...or vice-versa.

If for whatever the reason, the torrents you're on are already giving you 25-27 KB/sec download while you're only giving 6 KB/sec back...and your connection is 256 kilobits/sec download max...then you're not going to get much/any faster download speed no matter what you change upload speed to. However, if you're giving less back, then you will eventually find torrents that give little back in return! Plus if everyone cuts their upload low then nobody gets fast(er) download.

If while your connection is 512 kbps during the night, then your download speeds in µTorrent *SHOULD* go over 32 KB/sec (possibly as high as 55-60 KB/sec) on good/well-seeded torrents if your ISP isn't throttling BitTorrent traffic and actually giving what they say they are. It also depends on what your upload bandwidth changes to during night hours.
